Session 8: Bioreactor design and Scale-up:
The design ofthe bioreactor plays a major role in the functioning of the bioprocessand upstreamprocessing. The simple designmakes it possible to control the degree of shear uniformly within a reactor(critical to cell growth). For commercializing the product scale up of thebioreactor is very important. The success of the process hinges, to a limit, onensuring the designing aspects in bioreactor and the operational procedures.
Session 9: Bioplastics and Biopolymers:
Bio-plasticscanhelp reduce reliance on fossil fuels, support sustainability in the industryand allow manufacturers to diversify feedstock. Biopolymershowever are the distinctive classification of the group of materials underwhich bio-plastics are also included. Plastics are replaced with bio-plastics,since they pollute our environment, pose a danger to wildlife and they do notdegrade quickly. But new research findsbio-plastics are just as toxicas ordinary plastics. Bio-based and biodegradable plastic is no safer thanother plastic. This session deals with the latest works and news about thebio-plastics.
Session 10: Synthetic Biology:
Synthetic biologyresearchers and companies around the world are harnessing the power of natureto solve problems in medicine, manufacturing and agriculture. It is the basisfor the discovery and design of biological catalysts for industrialapplication. A unique ethical concern about synthetic biology is that it mayresult in the creationof entities which fall somewhere between living things and machines.
Session 11: Regenerative Medicine And Tissue Engineering:
Here by regenerativemedicines mean the bioprocess engineering area of stem cell tissueengineering including scale-upand scale-down.In the “whole bioprocessing” aspect the complete process starting from donor orpatient biopsy all the way through by clinical insertion to the patients.
Bioprocessingfor RegenerativeMedicine is an entirely new field, which can only be partially comparedwith that of mass production of molecularmedicines. Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering are one of thefastest growing areas of research in medical industries.
Session 12: Agri-food technology:
